Dear Parent or Guardian,
Your child is interested in joining the TRIO/Talent Search (TS) program, a free program that will help her/him complete high school and continue on to higher education. The services are free and include:
· Career Exploration
· Math/English/Science Tutoring
· College Visits
· SAT/ACT/ACCUPLACER Preparation
· Information About Higher Education
· Assistance with College Admissions Applications
· Assistance with Financial Aid Applications
To receive these services, this application must be completed and signed by you. The information required includes family income information, parent’s educational status, student’s citizenship status and permission for TS to have access to the student’s school records. All information is kept confidential and secure.
The most difficult question to answer is: “What is your taxable income as it appears on your most recent tax form?” If you did not have to file taxes, the answer is “0”. Taxable income is not the same as adjusted gross income or the total amount of wages earned. For help, look at the back of the TS application form or contact TS staff (listed in the application package)
We look forward to helping your child achieve his or her dream of continuing onto higher education! If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office at 781-477-2190.
